2020 speaker series (virtual)

Due to its popularity last year, we’re bringing back mike stein and highways of the past: canoeing the grand canyon of the liard, online tuesday, july 7! 

In 1972 Mike Stein and five fellow adventurers (Adolf Teufele, Wink Bradford, Ferdi Wenger, Jim McConkey & Harvey Fraser) set out on a journey on the Liard River through parts of the Yukon, British Columbia and the Northwest Territories. Their trip focused on the Grand Canyon, a 20 km stretch of the Liard containing numerous class IV and higher rapids, and was filmed by Adolf Teufele. For decades the resulting 16 mm film was thought lost, but Mike not only found a copy, he also had it digitized.

Since its premiere at the Whistler Museum’s 2019 Speaker Series, the film has been on a journey of its own, and Mike Stein will be on hand to discuss the experiences he has had with Highways of the Past over the last year.

The film will be followed by a Q&A session with Mike Stein. Register here!

Participants must register for the event at eventbrite.ca as space is limited. Registration will open Tuesday, June 30.
